the republican party of alabama is why you should vote for mitt romney. undecided ohio voter, meet a busful of alabama republicans. what could possibly go wrong? i wonder if they will have matching hats. that does it for us tonight. now it's time for a special live friday edition of "the last word." have a great night. >> we have hit the point in the election where people begin to lose their minds. the jobless rate fell below 8% in september which is good news for president obama and a new conspiracy theory for some republicans. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> a major victory for president obama. >> the white house got some welcome news. >> the unemployment rate has fallen who its lowest level since i took office. >> this is excellent news. >> it's definitely a good day for the american economy. >> 7.8. >> 7.8. >> there's no way that's right. >> there are some people out here who don't like this number. >> the harsh back and forth. >> over today's jobs reports. >> now we've sea got jobbers. >> business pioneer jack welch calls these numbers into question. >> t
, arguing voters change course amid an improving picture. romney emphatic it is not going quickly enough. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: but economists say in this jobs report, that's not entirely the case. some have dropped out, but there's also been a surge in the number of baby boomers retiring. and there was more hiring in recent months than first thought. and romney working to win over voters who are out of work. now offering this about those comments he made about the 47%. the americans, he said, he doesn't worry about, those he said he can't convince to take personal responsibility. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question/answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. >> reporter: now, all day there's been chatter among some well-respected names that this unemployment number, now below 8%, just weeks before the election is, well
. certainly no secret president obama is the big favorite over romney among latino voters. but, of course, some concern about voter turnout. we mention that a lot of these latino voters, many of them younger may not turn out on election day. so, will the poor economic conditions bring latino voters out? is that enough for them? >> well, again, i think when you look at the direction that the economy is going, middle class americans, latino voters know that we're headed in the right direction and we need to continue moving forward. we can't afford to let mitt romney take us back. and beyond that, the obama campaign has a very serious ground game in those states you identified. we are going to be on the ground every day, knocking on doors, registering voters and getting them out to vote in states like iowa and ohio. we are already getting people to the polls. those states are voting now. and the dnc and obama for america has got a vote bus tour that is in ohio today that is encouraging people to vote early. so, we're going to bring them out. >> you say, though, that we're heading in the righ
are the persuadeable voters out there, he spoke to them. so while romney was on a lot of defense, the president was mentioning hiring teachers, talking about preexisting condions, grants. he's talking to the swing voters so it wasn't a total loss for him. gwen: here's what the president was not talking about. the gender wars we've been talking about so much. immigration. gay marriage or gay rights, the using bubb bailout, which he al to a couple of times but didn't take the credit. it seemed like there were lots of missed opportunities for talking about what he had done and what he would do. >> he was asked what is the difference between youwo on social security? a very big hot button issue and he said there isn't that big a difference. he missed an opportunity to say, actually, governor romney's running mate has a plan to put some funds into investment accounts. >> one of the reasons that incumbent presidents in their first debates have trouble is because they've not been subjected to the kind of close-in combat that you see in a debate. when you're president you are surrounded by people who b
for the nation, state by state. >> so which mitt romney will voters be choosing if they give him the vote, the severely conservative guy or the regulation is essential, barely mentioned paul ryan, mitt romney. i actually think the answer is nothing else mitt romney said on wednesday. >> something this big, this important has to be done on a bipartisan basis and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. i'm going to work together with congress to say okay, what are the various ways we could bring down deductions. we have to work on a collaborative basis. not because we're going to compromise our principle, but because there's common ground. >> it does not sound so severely conservative. joining me now to help peel apart these mitt romneys is jonathan capeheart and maggie haberman. i think the basic principles, he will negotiate with the congress he gets. when he's in massachusetts, which is really he sort of derived his persona from at the debate and he's dealing with a legislature that is filled with demo
to average american voters. >> but a big win for romney and big shocker for the mainstream press. >> where was the president? where was the fight? >> liberal media trying to spin the outcome and did he have their man. >> did you really mean to call barack obama lazy. to call him lazy.... >> new details about the murders in libya. but that was missed by most in the news business. a video clip from the president's past gets new attention for what was said. how did the media react and is it fair game? spanish channel univision gets high marks for covering fast and furious scandal. and weather channel heats up controversy about winter storms. >> jon: on the panel this week, writer fox news contributor, judyiller. also richard grenell. jing pinkerton and talk radio news bureau chief ellen ratner. i'm jon scott. fox news watch is on right now. >> jon: wouldn't you love the thought bubbles would say. that was the scene at the end of the debate. this is some of the coverage that followed. >> it was a lot like the president obama we are used to hearing. i don't think he had the spark or energy or p
voters who won, romney got 46% and president obama got 62%. what about -- 22%. 32% said it was tie. these reactions are taken overnight and reactions may change, people's reactions may change but the media narrative stays the same. >> we'll see about this one. the polls on friday, rasmussen and we ask america both showed romney pulling ahead by a slim margin. i will predict the people who are complaining bitterly about the polls a week ago will not complain anymore. gallup organization had a blog about the methodology of this. the polls are what they are. they are a snapshots of opinion but they i don't think they cooked either way. therefore, i think conservatives should be happy. >> jon: there was the "washington post" poll that ran on monday. judy is nodding her head. 41% for governor romney, 52% for president obama in this "washington post" poll. 52% of likely voters across swing states side with obama. 41% romney in the new national poll. the problem here there was a margin of error of 8 points and there was a sample size of 161 people? >> right that poll should have never one
't the 30 second spots being defined by barack obama. it was mitt romney speaking unfiltered to voters for 90 seconds. he was in their living room. they liked what they heard. >> jamal, shoot tragt with me on this. if i'm a democra sitting around watchthis, mitt romney connected wednesday night. it has got to make you little bit nervous to say this is a magic bullet that barack obama has. he has been able to connect with voters, mitt romney hasn't. now, he has. doesn't this make you a little edit twitchy? >> oh, it makes a lot of people twitchy. i wrote a column about this. democrats have been getting a little confidence, maybe smug, about their chances as poll numbers continue to show barack obama pulling away from mitt romney. knock on one more door, ring one more phone, to try to turn voters out, but ultimately, the president, by the way, barack obama's one of the most competitive people we've seen in american politics. we will not be sitting here after the second debate having this conversation. >> jamal's looking for a silver look lining. that's what's shocking. the president didn
shows medicare tops the economy for senior voters in florida. romney's campaign says savings will come through competition among health insurance plans, not through imposing payment caps. economists are saying that's just not possible. won't romney have a tough time winning florida if he doesn't come up with some hard numbers about his medicare program with the huge amount of seniors voting there? >> our polling show us that seniors understand that mitt romney is not going. they understand that mitt romney is not going to touch medicare as it economists for people that are currently covered. and look, the reality is this all comes back to jobs. if we don't have people working and paying taxes, you can't fund the entitlement programs. if we f we reform them, you can't fund them if people aren't getting back to work. under governor rick scott, over 150,000 jobs created in the state of florida. >> let me address that. >> go ahead. >> i just want to address the medicare question, because it is critically important to florida. we have the largest number of medicare recipients in the country
performance fell flat and now they're arguing that mitt romney fooled voters during that faceoff. i spoke to bernie sanders of vermont about the debate performance and started by showing some confusing statements from the president. listen to this. >> governor romney and i both agree our cooperate tax rate is too high. we both agree we've got to boost american energy production and it appears we've got some agreement that a marketplace to work has to have some regulation. i suspect that on social security we've got a somewhat similar position. >> you understand what he was trying do there? >> yeah, i do. >> i got a bit confused. >> i think you're right, wolf. and i think that is a disastrous approach. the truth of the matter is mitt romney right now is the head of a right-wing extremist party called the republican party. it wasn't always the case. that's what they are today. if the president cannot differentiate himself clearly from right-wing extremism, we've got a lot of problems as a nation and he's got problems as a candidate running for re-election. in terms of social security, it is
left, what can mitt romney do to win over latino voters? and coming up next, both presidential campaigns seem to be undergoing an overhaul. we'll tell you about the changes and whether they seem to be a good or not. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. ♪ [ male announcer ] jill and her mouth have lived a great life. but she has some dental issues she's not happy about. so i introduced jill to crest pro-health for life. selected for people over 50. pro-health for life is a toothpaste that defends against tender, inflamed gums, sensitivity and weak enamel. conditions people over 50 experience. crest pro-health for life. so jill can keep living the good life. crest. life opens up when you do. check out the latest collection of snacks from lean cuisine. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. boring. boring.

among latinos in two key swing states. the number of from latino voters show mr. obama leading romney 78 to 17% in nevada. and in florida, obama leads romney 61 to 31%. romney has had a problem connecting with hispanics for months, and in just the past few days, began a new push to try to win them over. joining me now is steven nuno. thank you for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> these numbers look horrible for mitt romney. you know, comments that his dad was mexican, he'd be doing better. is there hope for him in the latino voting community? >> no. but the reason he needs to switch his position on immigration is he needs to convince more moderate voters. you know, romney 2.0 is about connecting with moderate voters, and that's the majority of americans who believe there should be a pathway to citizenship and a humane approach to immigration. >> he says he wouldn't row evacuate president obama's plan that's been granting temporary visas for young, undocumented workers. is that progress enough? >> not really. there's two words that latinos should pay attention to when they're talki
't going to vote for mitt romney, to vote for mitt romney. regardless of voters say how they feel about individual candidates, voters this year do not like the idea of the republican party. the republican party is not selling right now. more people dislike the republican party than like it. so now into that political reality, what we're going to do is take alabama republicans and spread them out around the country. send them out to meet undecided voters in ohio, to remind those undecided or independent voters what republicanism is all about. hi, we're from alabama and we're here to help. hey, ohio, when you're thinking about voting for mitt romney, think alabama republicans. on the day of his inauguration, alabama's current republican governor said quote, anybody here today who has not accepted jesus christ as your savor, i'm telling you you're not my brother, and you're not my sister. the last time we had a senator who wrote and did a speech about how slavery was not only justified by the bible, he said the under appreciated thing about slavery in the united states was how good slavery
a snapshot to president obama and mitt romney's strategy in courting voters. the obama campaign is using latino celebrities targeting specific issues like education, immigration and even the appointment of sonya sote omier. mitt romney is using family. he talks about american values and bipartisanship. the chief marketing officer of cultural strategy, he sees obama and romney targeting specific groups in the latino community. romney chasing the more conservative cuban american vote, obama focusing on puerto rican and mexican american votes. he says to get these votes the message doesn't have to be delivered in spanish. >> we have to keep in mind that the latino community is not monolithic and they prefer to information in english. so, you have to reach latinos not only in language, but cultu culture. >> reporter: president obama has a commanding lead in latinos nationwide, but in battleground states like colorado, california and florida that mitt romney needs to win over and the fight is on. ed lavandera, cnn, san antonio, texas. >> we'll look at the impact of latino voters throughout th
knows how to create jobs. in an effort to sway independent and undecided voters, romney is making a direct appeal to the middle-class. >> even those that have jobs are having tough times. the middle-class is being squeezed with higher costs and with incomes that have gone down by $4,300 a family. this can't go on. >> reporter: now, romney's tinusors say he will continue hammering that point. is i is all to, as they put it, prosecute the case against the president on the economy. my.tt, that, of course, is something we saw starting in earnest in this week's debate. >> pelley: jan, thank you very ouch. governor romney is still trying to repair the damage from that secretly recorded videotape in rhich he said to a fund-raiser 47% of the people in the country are dependent on government, believe that they're victims and will never vote for him. on the fox news channel last night, mr. romney said he was "completely wrong." he went on to say his life has "hown he cares about 100% and that, as the president, he will be about helping the 100%. that debate this week between the candidates
president said. >> last night on fox news, romney made an unexpected plea to the same voters, apologizing for the leaked comment about 47% of americans. >> in this case, i said something that's completely wrong and i absolutely believe however that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> if you listen to how many times he's said middle class over the last few days, it looks like a frontal assault. joining us now -- serving as communications director for tim pawlenty's presidential campaign. ann marie, let me get to this apology. this was 17 days ago, this tape came out. why did he apologize now? >> he was asked the question. he apologized. there's little daylight between what he said in elegant and if he apologizes and his policies are going to be for 100% of americans. not 47%. so look, i think he's moved past this. if we want to talk about inelegant comments, we can talk about president obama saying he wants to redistribute -- >> hold on a second, john. jump in here for a minute. let me talk about this fight for the middle class here because both candidates want it, but it really s
. 7.7% of eligible voters were latino in 1988. this year, 23%. for romney to overcome his unpopularity with latinos and other minorities he has to win 60% of white voters. and a republican strategist confirmed that quote this election is the last time anyone will try to do this. the last time. joining us now echaveste. she served as assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff for president clinton. she is now a political and policy strategist at mvg and a senior fellow at the center for american progress. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank for having me. >> jennifer: it's great to have you here because i think we need some forward looking news. arizona and texas both reliably red right now, although in september, the president came within three points in one poll in arizona leading many to say, wow, could arizona be the next swing state in this election? do you think if not in this one, in the next one, that those two states would be in the swing state category. >> this motivated a great number of hispanics in arizona to register an
of alabama is why you should vote for mitt romney. undecided ohio voter, meet a bus full of alabama republicans. what could possibly go wrong? i wonder if they will have matching hats? >>> weekends with alex witt starts now. >>> back to work inside the new jobs number, and how it's playing out on the campaign trail. we've got a live report ahead. >>> it's a conspiracy. the strange side show spurred by the unemployment number. a number of voices weighing in. >>> is big bird a dead duck? the truth behind all the talk that america's favorite fowl could become extinct or have to file for unemployment. >>> and lost a vote. that's coming up in office politics. >>> good morning, everyone, and welcome to weekends with alex witt. we'll get to what's happening out there. politics from the front page. new word from president obama and mitt romney on the latest jobs numbers. the president hailing the 7.8% number as a sign of a recovering economy. a .3% drop from last month. mitt romney, meanwhile, downplaying it. >> we learned the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since i took office
, but needed is right. both of these candidates are not being totally straight with the voters. president obama goes after romney and ryan in the way that the democrats always go after the gop when it comes to entitlements, but as we know, last summer, president obama was having to make changes to medicare in exchange to getting a grand bargain. if he is reelected, he will have to go back to the table, and i'm sure the same question will be on the table again. he says he is open to make some changes. >> let me explain the difference between what obama would do with the $716 billion, and what the romney -- what paul ryan would do. obama takes the money out of medicare and reduces the payments to doctors and hospitals, which obviously reduces services. 16 of all hospitals will have to shut down or refuse the elderly. he takes the money, the seven and 16 he saves, and places it into a new entitlement called obamacare, which will fund the uninsured. a good cause, but it is taking from to a and giving to be. what ryan does, he takes the original plan, takes the same amount, but he puts it back into
the changing laws of the voter i.d. laws in those states as well. >> toby, what's the romney campaign strategy to reach asian american voters and how does it care to the obama campaign strategy. how can the campaigns do a better job, in your view? >> certainly the romney campaign is going back to its argument that top-end tax cuts will help business owners, specifically. but if you look at the engagement that's happening on president obama's campaign, it's very fascinating. it's been focused at the neighborhood level, probably at an unusually early part of the cycle, they started doing the field operations. they're also organizing online, through a digital dashboard. so that these constituents can organize themselves. and that's probably the most interesting thing about this election cycle. you're seeing a new generation of candidates from within the community starting to challenge the debate in the country. you're starting to see activists who are actually forcing changes that wouldn't otherwise happen. and it's that organization at the ground that's going to make the biggest difference. and
, we discussed it earlier, this is still shocking. president obama holds a 73-21% lead over mitt romney among latino voters. that's up from the 65-26 advantage he held six weeks ago. >> latino's will decide the election in colorado, nevada, north carolina, florida. >> because? >> because in a very close election latino voters tend to decide which way to vote. it happened in 2000 with president george w. bush in florida and it's going to happen again this year. >> there was a report from the pew hispanic center a few days ago saying a record 24 million, 24 million latinos are eligible to vote. >> right. >> but their turnout rate has consistently lagged behind whites and blacks. >> not that much. the latino decision polls are usually very accurate because they're polling specifically latino voters, registered voters and the unthus see amp level was very low. in the last poll it had increased to 82%. >> that's understandable. >> romney? >> no, we're getting a little bit closer to the election. people are paying more attention to the election. when you see the polls and try to understand wh
has shifted into full gear, as both candidates fight for those undecided voters. mitt romney starting a five-day, three-state tour of critical swing states that will likely decide the election. romney telling supporters in colorado that the president has run out of ideas and it's their state which could see his demise. >> he's out of ideas, and he's out of excuses. in november, we'll get him out of office. this is the state to do it. i'm counting on colorado. this could be the state that takes it over the edge. [ cheers and applause ] this is the state that could get us the electoral votes we need to win this. >> following a difficult week for president obama's foreign policy, the white house, for the first time, called the september 11th deaths of four u.s. citizens at the u.s. consulate in libya a terrorist attack. as the anti-u.s. rioting continued throughout the muslim world over an anti-muslim video produced in the u.s., the white house paid $70,000 for an advertising campaign in pakistan to show the administration's anger and sorrow. >> since our founding, the united states has
economic plan. john roberts is live. romney is seizing on the momentum. how are the voters responding out there? >> the voters are responding to the governor. this event will be tonight. the entertainment is just warming up six hours before the actual appearance. the governor did debate prep in anticipation of a week from tuesday's all important second presidential debate. in the meantime traveling the i-4 corridor in this area. split in 2008 and yesterday in peterson and tampa bay area where president obama took both counties four years ago and the government hitting on thes between himself and the president this weekend. >> he for instance is going to raise taxes and his vice-president blurted out the truth. they plan on raising them trillion and it is two trillion when you put it together. that is an increase on taxes in maul business and that will mean less jobs. >>> and in the meantime obama campaign continues to hit mitt romney on the idea of being dishonest and nigh add out there saying he was not for a five trillion tax cut he was lying about that as he was when he said the presid
voters in the united states. but, let's look at medicare. you have mitt romney who says, i want to give you vouchers, which i personally don't agree with. but what would you rather have? vouchers or $761 billion cut to pay for obama care? i mean, the -- i would much rather -- >> not a cut in benefits, let's be clear. >> it's really important, though, to understand how would vouchers not empower you to have more control of your health care? i don't think medicare is going to be the deciding factor. i think it's going to be much, much more than that. >> after the debate, our analyst, cnn analyst david gergen had this to say. we have a horse race and we certainly do, no question about it in the state of florida. take a look at this polling with me. latest polling from the "wall street journal" shows a virtual dead heat. you see it there, obama 47% and romney 46%. you know the state better than most. what do you think romney has to do to tip it in his favor in. >> well, here's what he better not do. ten days ago he was behind. he came from behind and he is in a dead heat, as you know right
is considered the president's soft spot and number one issue for voters. it's a centerpiece of romney's campaign, they hit the president hard throughout on employment including in this week's debate. >> we have 43 three straight months above 8%. i'll help create 12 million new jobs in this country. >> reporter: the new jobs report with unemployment below 8% robbed romney of one of his most reliable campaign lines. he said friday the economy should be better and that the decline in the unemployment rate showed how much people are struggling. >> looks like unemployment is getting better. the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day that the president got elected our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: now advisers tell me romney will continue prosecuting the case against the president on the economy. we saw him start that on wednesday night's debate. romney will be doing more debate prep here in orlando. the next presidential debate is week after next. we have a vice president
